HOUSES SANTA ISABEL in Lisbon, Portugal by Ricardo Bak Gordon

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Ricardo Bak Gordon

Perhaps what’s most important in this project is the desire to refer to the city that exists within the city – the places inside the city, whose matrix anchored in street, square and block it originated. There are many such places in Lisbon – more or less old, deeper or more open to the sky, but always very impenetrable.

Article source: MATEO ARQUITECTURA

The project according to its author

The plaza is a surface, a topography drawn out in relation to the movement of the water and built by pedreiros, following patterns that are abstract but not random.

Floating on this surface is an object. At its base, water, frozen here to form a skating rink.

THE THREE CUSPS CHALET in Sé, Braga, Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Article source: Tiago do Vale Architects

HISTORICAL CONTEXT

In the second half of the 19th century Portugal saw the return of a large number of emigrants from Brazil. While returning to their northern roots, specially in the Douro and Minho regions, they brought with them sizable fortunes made in trade and industry, born of the economic boom and cultural melting pot of the 19th century Brazil. With them came a culture and cosmopolitanism that was quite unheard of in the Portugal of the eighteen-hundreds.

Controlar Headquarters in Alfena, Portugal by ADOFF.ZURCATNAS

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Article source:  ADOFF.ZURCATNAS

Concept

Based on the pre-existence of a large building which serves as a “skin” to maintain, the concept of action is based on dividing the interior space in “boxes” spaced to the existing construction and arranged according to the program and spans in the original facades. This proposal aims to build within the built and add without touching in order to integrate without merging two distinct approaches to architecture, the existing and the new proposal.
